We discuss our neighbor Avalanche Software, the uselessness of the game's quidditch coach (as well as our respective quidditch positions), antisemitism, and a disingenuous use of a powerful platform, letting people be the tour guide to their world, and pickles. Oh, and please always keep reading with the kids in your life!
